We got this gelding about a month ago and he had been great. Until my mare came in heat. He went completely wild on us this weekend. Slightly better now. Trying to kick and bite. The biggest of all tell tell is down there has also been responding like a stallion. We've not witnessed him jumping on her but other actions are not typical gelding behavior.
A friend of mine said her geldings try to ride eachnother and that this is typical gelding behavior. I admit most of my experience is with mares and one stud not much with geldings. But I have never witnessed behavior in a typical gelding, nor have I witnessed any behavior like we are having with a gelding. My parents always had geldings me mares growing up and none of their gelding exhibited any type of stallion behavior at all.
Any suggestions about this horse we've got? I have kids and can not have a horse acting like this with them around. We have decided to sell him, but we have to get this feral behavior out of him and again he has been doing great until this weekend and nothing was different from any other daythis weekend and he continues to be this feral horse. We could litterally do most anythig with him until my mare came in heat this weekend.
